MS Dhonis batting angers Sourav Ganguly and Nasser Hussain Twitterati also unhappy

first_imgMS Dhoni will be key to India’s chances in the 2019 World CupMike Owen/Getty ImagesCommentators Nasser Hussain and Sourav Ganguly were left scratching their heads after a strange innings from Mahendra Singh Dhoni where he hardly made an attempt to chase down England’s big score after the wicket of Hardik Pandya. At that stage, India needed 71 off 31 balls but MSD seemed to give up and hardly attempted anything out of the ordinary. Towards the end of the innings, he was just taking singles and looked to be content turning the strike over to an unsettled Kedar Jadhav. As the required run-rate went through the roof, commentators Nasser Hussain and Sourav Ganguly expressed their inability to understand the tactics of MS Dhoni. Hussain seemed exasperated. “I am completely baffled,” the former England captain said and said to his commentary partner: “It’s over to you to explain what is happening.”He also reminded everyone of a similar performance from MSD in the bilateral series between these two sides last year in England where, in the second match of the series, Dhoni seemed to give up the chase after the required run-rate became too high and needed a message from the dressing room to attempt big strokes.Ganguly didn’t directly criticise Dhoni but his words seemed directed towards him. “The team has to make a decision whether they are just happy not getting out or are looking to win. The message has to go out that they should keep attempting big shots even if they get out. You can’t have a team losing in a chase with 5 wickets in hand,” he said.A little later, when Dhoni casually tapped the ball into the off side for a single, Dada said to his co-commentator: “I have no explanation for this. You asked me to explain what is happening, I can’t.”Hussain pointed to the large number of Indian fans and said Dhoni should provide something for them. “There are so many Indian fans here, they are leaving now. Surely Indian fans will want to see Dhoni have a go.”The fans and other experts also seemed perplexed by this strategy and expressed their anguish on Twitter. Here are some of the reactions.Unbelievable batting by Dhoni.. didnt even try to win it…even Pandiya lost it in the end before he got out…commentators cant beleive it.. fans cant believe it…— Shahzeb Khanzada (@shazbkhanzdaGEO) June 30, 2019Everyone to Dhoni and Jadhav: #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/uJ8Atuogtd— V (@virajkulhari) June 30, 2019In the last over Dhoni tried to hit four & Sixes, why not 5 over before?

Did IBM fire 100000 employees in last few years just to look

first_imgLast month, IBM sacked more than 2,000 employeesCredit: ReutersIn a shocking revelation by a former vice president in an ongoing age discrimination lawsuit, International Business Machines Corp (IBM) has laid off as many as 1,00,000 employees in the last 7 years. The deposition further said that IBM took the step to enhance its appeal towards millennials and look “cool” and “trendy” as Amazon and Google. It is to be noted that the Armonk-based IT giant is facing several lawsuits accusing it of sacking older employees, including a class-action case in Manhattan and individual civil suits filed in California, Pennsylvania, and Texas.In a statement, IBM said, “The Company hires 50,000 employees each year, and spends nearly a half-billion dollars on training our team. We also receive more than 8,000 job applications every day, the highest rate that we’ve ever experienced, so there’s clear excitement about IBM’s strategy and direction for the future”.As per a report published in Bloomberg, IBM’s revenue has been shrinking since last seven years. In order to cut down on costs, the company has fired thousands of people in the US, Canada, and other high-wage markets. At the end of the year 2018, IBM’s workforce has slumped to its lowest point in six years with 3,50,600 employees globally which is 19 percent since 2013. michiganmodern.orgThe latest revelation by Alan Wild, former vice president of human resources in one of the lawsuits, claimed that IBM sacked 50,000 to 1,00,000 employees in just the last several years. In a submission to the court Wild said IBM face huge recruitment problems and with the objective to show that IBM was not “an old fuddy-duddy organization” and show itself as “as [a] cool, trendy organization” like Google and Amazon, the company sacked older employees. The document further added that following this strategy, IBM fired Texas-based Jonathan Langley, 61 after 24 years of his services in the company who filed a case. IBM filed a motion requesting the court to dismiss his case, in turn, Langley’s lawyers filed an opposition to that motion.Last month, IBM sacked more than 2,000 employees. The company had said, “We are continuing to reposition our team to align with our focus on the high-value segments of the IT market – while aggressively hiring in critical new areas that deliver value for our clients and IBM.”last_img read more

Australia warns more terror attacks likely in Sri Lanka

first_imgSri Lankan soldiers stand guard under the rain at St. Anthony’s Shrine in Colombo on April 25, 2019, following a series of bomb blasts targeting churches and luxury hotels on the Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka. Photo: AFPAustralia on Friday warned more terror attacks were “likely” in Sri Lanka, cautioning citizens against visiting the island nation following the Easter Sunday bombing that claimed 253 lives.“Terrorists are likely to carry out further attacks in Sri Lanka,” the foreign ministry warned in its latest travel advice.“Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners,” it said.Canberra advised Australians to “reconsider your need to travel to Sri Lanka”, following similar warnings from Britain, the Netherlands and the United States since the April 21 bombings.The US State Department has warned that terrorist groups “continue plotting” possible attacks, with targets including tourist locations, places of worship and airports.An Australian woman and her 10-year-old daughter were among those killed in the series of bomb blasts that targeted tourists and Christian worshippers.Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that intelligence indicated the attack was carried out by a local group, with support from the Islamic State group.“There were links between this group, and support being provided—including the targets of these attacks—by the Daesh network,” he said.Australian counter-terrorism police would assist Sri Lankan authorities with their investigation and are probing suspected attacker Abdul Lathief Jameel Mohamed’s time living in Melbourne.The Australian Federal Police refused to say whether the 36-year-old was known to them or whether he was radicalised while living in Australia.“As there is an ongoing investigation into the attacks, it would not be appropriate to comment,” a spokesperson said.Tensions remain high in Sri Lanka and a curfew has been put in place across the island, with authorities still in a desperate search for suspects.Authorities on Thursday revised down the death toll by more than 100 to 253, admitting some of the badly mutilated bodies had been erroneously double-counted.last_img read more
